Related KOL Coal Companies Lobby For Clean Energy Subsidies Silver Shines Among 2016's Best ETFs

President Donald Trump, obviously, was the candidate that promised to restore coal country's lost glory and KOL responded.

Still, there are ample indications that Trump's promises to coal miners will be hard to keep.
